DIY . Laundry Detergent

DIY Landry Detergent with Free Printable | Te Amo Too

A life without toxicity is probably not something we could all achieve. But we all know how extremely important it is to reduce our exposure to toxins. They enter our bodies and corrode it from inside, damaging our systems, and preventing our bodies to self heal and correct. Regardless of wether we notice it or not, toxins can still hurt us. Reducing exposure today is the first step to building health for tomorrow. We are susceptible to toxins from many areas that are outside of our control. So we need to do the best we can at what we can control, like the detergent […]

I have so much fun planning birthday parties, thinking of every single detail, designing every decoration, assembling all of the little projects and even though the list goes on and on, a beautiful looking party is not necessarily a fun party.

To keep up with the Owl theme of my daughter’s first birthday party, I put together a Wise Owl Corner, a Night Owl Corner and a Winter Owl Corner […]

Which is why they work […]
